We had a great time on Mike’s boat. We went to several locations with marvellous scenaries where we enjoyed some snorkelling and snacks. Mike told us stories and facts about the different islands. Great host! Polite and funny. We highly reccommend a trip with Mike!! He also had all the equipments for snorkelling available, which was very fortunate.

Rent a boat in Crete, Greece 

 

Crete is the largest of the Greek islands and is located in the southern Aegean Sea. The beauty of Creta is its natural landscapes and rich culture. The island is divided into four areas: Heraklion, Lassithi, Chania and Rethymno. Rent a boat in Heraklion and explore all these areas and their beaches. The iconic island of Crete is one of the most popular destinations for tourists due to its historical sites and world-renowned cuisine.

 

According to many travellers, the best way to get to know the island of Crete and its surroundings is by boat. Rent a boat in Crete for island hopping in the Greek islands. We will make sure you will have a unique and fun holiday in the company of your friends or family. 

 

Boat rental prices in Crete

 

Boat rentals in Greece are very common, so you can find a wide variety of boats. In Crete, you can find different boats such as motorboats, catamarans, and sailboats. The price for renting a boat in Skiathos starts from only 150 euros during the low season. Please note that prices increase during the high season due to the high demand for boats.

 

Do I need a license to charter a boat in Crete?

 

In Greece, a license is required depending on the type of boat you charter. For a yacht, you must have a valid license and a CV showing that you have previous sailing experience. On the other hand, if you want to rent a motorboat, you will be required to have a license only if the motor is 30 hp or more.

 

If you don't have a license, don't worry, you can still enjoy the sailing experience. You can rent a bareboat which does not require a license or you can choose any boat from the catalogue but with a skipper.

 

When is the best time to charter a boat in Crete?

 

Crete is known for its mild winds and rain for most of the year, but during the summer the temperature soars, giving a pleasantly warm feeling. Chartering a boat in Crete is ideal during the summer to experience the unique meltemia winds that will give you a cool feeling while sailing. Please note that in order to enjoy a boat trip during this season you must start the booking process at least three months in advance.
